Analysis Of The Four Pioneers

Amazing Essays
Some people take dancing more seriously than others. There’s people that dance for fun at parties, there’s people that like dancing a lot so they join a dance team, and there is people that love dancing so much that they even want to major in it. Also, there’s people that are born to dance; they don’t have to try that hard to be about to perform a dance move, and there’s people that have to practice a lot to be able to do a dance move. Well, I am in the middle. I like dancing a lot that I’ve joined dance teams, and I dance when ever I am bored, but no, I am not going to major in dancing. While reading “The Four Pioneers”, I was thinking about what dance means to me. I was having a lot of good thoughts while reading this text.

Reading about Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Hanya Holm made me realize how being a good dancer can take you far in life. It’s not about being a great dancer, but to be able to let

Well,yes, I defiantly learned a lot of beautiful things from reading “The Four Pioneers”. Dance is a lot more than just moving and dancing at a party. Reading about Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Hanya Holm put a lot of new thoughts into my head. They all danced very similar but differently at the same time. They all put their own style, their own personality that made each piece of dance very beautiful and unique. They all had their own ideas and started dancing differently, but yet they all got to be at the same level and be extraordinary dancers and that is what matters. All that dedication, work, and passion they put in payed of, and I think that is what matters the most. Another thing I learned is that there is a lot to learn from observing, reading, and paying attention. It doesn’t matter what the topic is, it is always good to get educated and learn as much as possible and dancing is part of our life so why not learn about

    The performance meant a lot to me because it gave me a whole new perspective in the importance of dancing. The dance represented a familiar scenario which I recognized in professional theaters. This was worth my money and time because I was amused and thrilled with new content. The theme of the dance was easy to recognize because of the performers body language and visual appearance. It basically let me know whether it was dark or happy themed.…

    All the dancers that participated in it all had their own personal stories that they could relate to which made the dance so special. Everyone was truly happy to be performing and telling the story. Another thing that really worked well with the dance was all the different parts throughout the dance along with the formations. Never did I once get bored and drift off into space while that dance was on stage. The choreography was so dynamic and unique that you never knew what to watch because everything that was going on was so beautiful.…

    Reflection Paper On Zumba

    I thought that the class was going to have a very energetic and party-like feel. I also thought that most of the people who were going to be attending the class were women with somewhat of a Latin background and also women who were really good at dancing. This is one of the main reasons why so many people don’t want to attend a Zumba class because they might feel as if they will not fit in or that they will make a fool of themselves since they can’t dance or have very minimal dancing experience. To be honest, I also had these thoughts. Although I love to dance, I thought that I was going to the odd one out and that I wasn’t going to be able to dance as well as the rest of…

    Encouragement and self-esteem are expressed through dancing. Dancing in a class makes students notice others’ strengths and weaknesses, so they can build off of each other. “Dancing offers the potential to accept your own body and revel in its beauty, its movement and rhythm” (Goldstein par.4). Even if there are a few conceded or discouraging students, this particular class makes students learn to overcome what others think. As people socialize in the class, everyone enjoys time together which benefits them health…

    Dance Theatre Observation

    I chose to attend the University Dance Theatre rehearsal because I really admire contemporary dance and wanted to watch what the dancers do “behind the scenes,” so to speak. I wanted to better understand the work that goes into the dances instead of just viewing the final piece, which I often do. I chose to watch a Ballet 1 technique class because ballet is a form of dance that I appreciate but never really understood and because ballet contrasts the modern dance rehearsal I viewed. I’ve always believed that ballet was too proper and structured for my liking and represented the human body in a very fake way, too posed and upright. I wanted to watch a class that challenged my beliefs and while I still don’t think ballet is the most enjoyable…

    Opening night, the dancers that performed in the University Dance Theatre production, had talent, agility, and graceful movements. The concert had a variety of dance genres, visual appeal, and emotions that each piece and the show overall represented. Humor, drama, and serenity were not emotions I thought I would receive while watching these dances. One thing I did not realize would make many of the pieces was how crucial and reliant lighting and graphics were necessary to make the piece more visually interesting. However, I was excepting similar dances and movements; even if, some pieces had comparable choreography and emotional appeal the diversity stood out.…
